The NFL season is to begin on September 5th with the Saints taking on the super bowl champion NY Giants. The NFL changed the first game to one day prior to accommodate President Barack Obama’s address to the democratic national convention. The first order of business will be to re-sign franchise quarterback Drew Brees. The Saints have up until March 5th to work out a long-term deal. Otherwise, look for the Saints to place the franchise tag on him to give themselves additional time to work out a long-term deal. The Saints have a plethora of other key personnel turning free agents as Marques Colston and Robert Meachem are looking for contracts. With the way Coach Sean Payton enjoys his 4 and 5 wide receiver sets, the Saints would need to fill these large voids either through the draft or through free agency.
